Consolation.

I don't know whether to put this in FYM or Zoo Confessionals but the mods can figure it out. Hugs and kisses to all my fellow Kerry supporters.
I had kept my composure until I got into my car to drive to school this morning, then I had a breakdown. Tears were rolling down my cheeks and I was sobbing (very dangerous while driving). Most people here at school have been kind and given me hugs, but there are those few who have been jerks. There are no words to describe what I am feeling right now, but my eyes are red and my gut hurts. Well, I guess I should say it. Edwards in 2008!!!!

By 2008, who knows what damage will have been done...and why would Edwards do any better than Kerry? The American people want Republicans. It makes me sick but it's that simple.

I'm doing OK. Of course I'm disappointed, but not shocked. I guess it's the historian in me, fd up things have been happening for ages. I don't like this development but I don't let the political situation run my life. I'm leaving town today, and going to, of all places, Washington D.C. We did our best, and it wasn't good enough. I have no regrets.

In fact I think the sympathy factor makes him even hotter

Plus now he has more time to work out

I'm sorry U2democrat, I'm not meaning to make light of your pain at all, just trying in a silly way to cheer you up.

It was a good fight.

Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better.

There is a lot of wisdom in this statement.

A number of conservatives thought the same thing through the Clinton years....

Yeah, I sure hated that budget surplus and not spending $87 billion on a war based on false pretenses.

Keep yer chin up, U2D. In the great cities of America—New York, Chicago, LA, Philly, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Miami—the centers of art, culture, education and business, where people value diversity, community, expression, and the free exchange of ideas, Kerry/Edwards dominated the vote by an 80 to 20 margin. So you're not alone.

Bush won in the suburbs and in rural America, where the predominant factor ruling their lives is FEAR. Bush sold fear and America bought it. Fear of homosexuality, fear of terrorism, fear of change.

But what can ya do, but keep fighting for truth, justice and what's right in your heart.

U2dem. Sorry, I'm not a Democrat but I DO support anyone that stands up for what s/he believes in and tries to make a difference. (listen to that Veggie Tales song, "Stand up! Stand up! for what you belieeeeeeeve in!") At least Kerry will have a position in the Senate. It wasn't all for naught! And Kerry won my state even though the west side is full of rich white conservatives!

I'm definitely NOT giving up. If anything, this only drives me even more for future political victories. I'll try to be as strong as I can during the immediate aftermath of this election, but I just feel like I've been run over by a truck.


I appreciate the light hearted Edwards jokes, they make me smile .

Edwards 2008!!!!
